SaraFish, well you have outdone yourself! These cookies were so easy to make...but, best of all, they were hands-down the absolute BEST tasting blondies I've ever tasted. I have made several versions of the brown sugar brownies in the past, and most of the directions are rather intricate... They can't touch this! I made these for the first time last night. I'll be making them again. Today! Just as soon as I make a trip to the supermarket for more brown sugar....... Thanks for sharing a gem of a recipe!
Absolutely SINFUL! Shame on your for introducing me to these!!! I had 5 of them....FIVE and I wanted a thousand more of them! I wont be losing any weight this week!!! LOL I didnt add in any nuts, or anything else for that matter. I used butter and made enough for a 9x13-inch dish. THe measurements were 3/4 cup margarine, 1 1/2 tbs milk, 1 1/2 c brown sugar, 2 eggs, 1 1/2 c flour, 3/4 tsp baking powder, 1/3 tsp salt, and 1 1/2 tbs vanilla. THanks for a wonderful (and sinful) dessert!!!
This are a great fast snack to go with tea. I can't eat nuts, but topped with mini m&m's, they are delicious!
Delicious!! I could not stop eating these!!
This recipe was so like my favorite brownies recipe, which is amazingly dense and fudgey, that I had to try them out. My man doesn't much care for chocolate so this seemed like a fair substitute. I used butter for my recipe and one whole vanilla bean plus a little extra extract to make sure there was enough flavor going on. I baked them until they resisted wobbling when the pan was shaken. Wow. It was all maple and caramel amazingness. I would say that if you do make this recipe plain with no mix-ins, be sure you use a very high quality vanilla. I never would have thought I'd like blondies, being a total chocoholic but here I am and these are great.
When I made these, I set out to make a double batch. But, when I opened my flour jar, I noticed that there was only one cup left, when the double batch called for two. Having already mixed the other ingredients, I never hesitated for a moment. I grabbed a canister of quick oats and added a cup to substitute for one of the cups of flour. I also used butter instead of margarine and used coconut as a mix in. I also added slightly more milk to make the ingredients more moist (I was afraid that they would dry out from the oatmeal). They turned out great, but probably would have been better with chocolate chips as well.
I followed the recipe exactly using finely chopped pecans. DH loved these. He said, they reminded him of old fashioned brown sugar pie with nuts. I like a thicker brownie so I baked mine in an 8x8 pan which took a little longer to bake. These freeze well. Thanks for posting.
These were pretty good. My husband said it was like a chocolate chip cookie without the chocolate chips. The kids are sniffing around for more. I really can't complain :)
